One-sort boosts recycling rates

Body: 

No longer required to sort their recyclables into separate bags, residents on four of the city’s collection routes recycled more in December and January.

The city reported recycling rates increased 63 percent on those four routes compared to the same period one year ago. The difference: This fall, homes along those routes were among the first to switch to one-sort recycling from the multi-sort system still in place across much of the city, which requires residents to sort recyclables into separate bags of glass, metal, plastics and paper.
